What To Expect

Why choose between an American tour of Niagara Falls or a Canadian one? A proper visit to Niagara Falls includes activities on both sides of the border. This tour takes care of that important detail.

Get things started on the right foot with a convenient hotel pickup (from Niagara Falls area) in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

This day trip to Niagara Falls hits all the hot spots of the area.

What more can be said about the Maid of the Mist boat cruise? This is the ultimate Niagara Falls activity and no trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime for those taking the tour between late April and October.

Outside of those dates, take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake—this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Other stops on this tour include the Niagara Gorge, Goat Island, Prospect Point Park observation tower overlooking the falls, Queen Victoria Park, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

Our guide, David was phenomenal. He kept our group well informed of the history and other valuable information. He kept us on schedule for the entire 7 hour tour which went by rapidly. The maid of the mist tour will be a memory of a lifetime. This experience was monumental.

Thank you Jessica!
Great tour!
Louise_B, Sept 2023
This tour is not only a great way to see all of the Falls, both USA and Canadian sides, it is a comprehensive introduction to the area and the history. You will learn what is here and how to navigate it. Randy (with a “y”) will take excellent care of you the entire duration of your tour. You will get the tips you need to get through the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds so you can stay dryer. You do stop for lunch at a food court with, actually, good food. You do have to get off the bus with your passports both ways. But Randy handles that with expertise. You won’t have to wonder what is around the corner because Randy keeps you 100% informed. He sets the meeting times to be back to the bus so all are on the same page. The Skylon tower was last and was an excellent ending. We recommend Over the Falls Tours for newcomers to Niagara as well as those who have been here before. Skip the lines and let them do the driving! You won’t regret it.
Nina_P, Sept 2023
Eduardo was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about the Falls, very efficient with the crowds, and kept us safe. Would highly recommend him as a tour guide!
Raw Power and Beauty of Niagara Falls

We were collectively amazed by the raw power and beauty of the falls. This experience was motivated by the cave of winds walk; an unforgettable and vivid experience for the ages. For those who can enjoy this experience they include on thier bucket list.

The Falls, Everything You Thought and More
Jim_F, Sept 2023
Just taking everything in that was Niagara Falls. I tour guide JTP was awesome. From the Maids of the Mist, the Cave Tour on Goat Island all the up close sounds and photos. Magical. We then went to see the Power Plant and the Floral Clock. Then to the view at Table Rock and to end up on Skylon Tower. The Falls do not disappoint.
Excellent day

Suzanne_K, Sept 2023
We had such a wonderful experience! We were picked up, driven to all the planned events, bypassed any lines, given plenty of time to view the sights, and dropped off at our hotels afterwards. We were Team Nancy and she was an expert. We could not have done this without Viator.
I recommend this tour
DavidWall, Sept 2023
This was a very good tour. My wife and I were picked up by David, on time in a small mini bus, early morning. We visited several sights as described in the booking. David was friendly, informative and professional. According to him he is the best. He was. This tour was so much better than trying to do all of this on your own in one day. David handled all of the ticketing process and made the day a very pleasant experience. Thanks David
Wonderful experience.
Thaxter_H, Sept 2023
Nick was the best tour guide. He was fun and very knowledgeable. Would recommend him and this tour always.
Niagare Anniversary Tour
Mary_M, Sept 2023
We both really enjoyed the boat ride - along with out visit to the Hurricane Deck. A little put-off by the way our guide rushed us through everything-picture taking definitely not encouraged, "lollygagging" to read plaques not encouraged. The bus stopped at the Hungry Moose for lunch - food was mediocre at best, ambiance was non-existent. A little disappointed in that - but, overall a great experience and I would recommend it to friends and family.
Best way to see Niagara Falls

Diana_N, Sept 2023
Everything was fantastic so it’s hard to pick! All the land marks are amazing but what made all come together as the experience of a lifetime was our tour guide Jessica. She is knowledgeable, efficient, friendly but must of all caring. Her attention to detail and helpful attitude was the icing on the cake!
